Fortnite season 4 brings meteor & map changes to hit game

The Fortnite season 4 revelations were what many of the game’s biggest fans had been expecting. Epic Games unveiled the newest season on May 1st to give Fortnite some new challenges. The mysterious meteor finally crashed down and with it came a major impact on the game’s map. In addition, there seems to be a new quest for players to get involved in for the latest season, as well as special skins that are available.

A recent report from The Verge noted that popular fan theories and questions about what Fortnite location would change on the game map were finally answered. It was not Titled Towers that was hit by the Fortnite meteor crash, but instead Dusty Depot. That area is now known as the Dusty Divot on the map with a huge crater now there. It’s said that with the crater are also special rocks that give low gravity when consumed. In addition, more surprises may be coming as the new season unfolds.

Epic Games has been teasing some sort of theme that may be superhero related. There were superhero faces shown in a comet graphic suggesting that maybe Fortnite Season 4 will be tied into Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War” movie. It’s mentioned by Verge that there are superhero-themed skins available for Epic Battle Pass subscribers. There is also a new “Save the World” five-part storyline which has gamers assembling their own superhero team to carry out a new quest. A popular theory also suggests that the meteor that hit Dusty Depot was actually launched by aliens as part of an attack and now superheroes may need to fight them off.

Fortnite has now been around since July of 2017 when it first debuted for various platforms including the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, macOS, and Microsoft Windows. It was nominated for multiple awards at various gaming awards events since then and won the “People’s Voice Award for Best Multiplayer/Competitive Game” at the 2018 Webby Awards.

The release of new seasons will only continue to bolster the popularity of this co-op survival game with new challenges and map changes ahead. Epic Games clearly had a hit on their hands even before the meteor hit the map for season 4. The game has surpassed over a million players and ranked within the best games of the year in 2017. It seems destined to continue that trend based on creative changes that are continually unveiled to the gameplay.
